Learning Esper Control / MTG Arena

Magic: The Gathering Arena

Learning Esper Control (B/U/W)

Decklist: https://aetherhub.com/Deck/Public?id=5246

This is a premium-heavy control deck that stalls with blue counters and white/black exile effects (Vraska’s Contempt, Ixalan’s Binding, Settle the Wreckage, Seal Away) that stalls until our opponent is out-valued by our card draw engines or out-pressured by our bombs/Plainswalkers. The deck in its current iteration is spell counter-heavy in order to target Approach of the Second Sun W/U decklists.

Sorcerer’s Wand/Famished Paladin OTK Infinite Combo Deck Tutorial

Decklist: https://aetherhub.com/Deck/Public?id=4999

The idea here is to equip Famished Paladin with Sorcerer’s Wand, give it lifelink via Cartouche of Ambition or Squire’s Devotion, and tap Famished Paladin until your opponent is dead; its ability gives it an infinite loop via lifelink. It’s not particularly consistent, but it is easy to pull off if you happen to draw well. I recommend this for fun, not for competitive play. Based on a list I saw by reddit user Munion42 (I added some stall elements). This list could be refined to a somewhat consistent deck but I’m not sure how the Wand can be tutored – a more experienced player might, but currently I think it’s too inconsistent to be problematic.
